A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

A Recycled Cornish Sky!

This months journal quilt is called 'Recycled Cornish Sky'. I suppose it could also have been called 'March Winds!' I have cropped this piece from an abandoned quilt that I was making for the Tin Mine Challenge, cq@10 in 2012. It wasn't working as I'd planned, so I started again. I always keep everything, even stuff that I consider to be a total disaster, but somehow, they always seem to be just right for future projects, including book wraps, and postcards. I have just added some red stitching to this, in keeping with my January and February jq's, and the 'line', is the bottom left red line of stitch from the left side to the bottom.

I'm still extremely busy with wedding preps, so not much else to show for now, apart from bridesmaid dresses, but they are to be kept under wraps until after the BIG day!!

Thanks for dropping by, hopefully I'll be back soonish!
